Pain Perdu (Lost Bread Toast)

Updated: Jul 19, 2018

For breakfast or for dessert, this recipe has been around for years and years! Easy, no need of a lot of ingredients, and of course super delicious!


  • 2 large eggs

  • ⅓ cup of sugar

  • ¼ cup of milk

  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

  • 2 slices of bread (the older the better)

  • 2oz of unsalted butter

  • Chocolate bar

Step 1:

Mix your egg with the sugar and the vanilla extract. When you obtain a homogenous mixture, add the milk. Pour some of the mixture in a soup plate (it will be easier to dump and coat your bread with it).

Step 2:

Dump your two slice in the mixture and let it soak for a couple of minutes. Don't forget both side!

Step 3:

In a pan on medium heat, add the butter. Once melted, grilled your bread, a couple minutes on each side.

Step 4:

Remove from the pan once the bread has a golden color. Cut in the shape you like and grate some chocolate on top of it!
